With just one saree you can achieve almost a dozen styles. So, this Diwali, why not jazz up your saree game? Here are some interesting ways to style this exquisite festive staple…

Belt It Up

If you don’t want to steer too far away from the traditional saree look and yet are willing to experiment, this style is definitely for you. All you need to pull off this style is a statement belt or kamarbhandh to cinch your waist. Drape your glorious six-yard in a normal way and then just accessorize it with your belt. Voila! You are ready to make heads turn with your style. A crop top or an off-shoulder top doubling up as a blouse can further accentuate your look.

Ditch The Conventional

Blouse Enough of breaking your head to get that perfect fitting blouse. Honestly, there are several ways to style your saree without it. You can simply grab your favourite shirt and drape a printed or plain saree over it. Alternatively, a saree paired with a crop top, bustier, vest or printed tee can instantly make you stand out in style in the crowd.
